A gorgeous snowfall, just in time for Winter Walk

Northfield seemed to be in the middle of the heaviest snow band from this latest storm. I’m guessing we got 10 inches of the fluffy variety.  Anyone have an accurate total?

It’ll make parking downtown challenging today for holiday shoppers, as to-the-curb removal won’t happen till tonight.  I took these photos shortly after 6 am: Division St. outside GBM and Oolala.

The forecast calls for high temps to be in the teens through next week, perfect for keeping the snow in good condition for Winter Walk 2010 next Thursday, Dec. 9.

Update 4 PM: some additional photos of Division St. between 4th and 5th.

    Griff- Really great pictures. I think I’ll still take this scenery over sand and cacti, although they can be tempting on the -0 days. Snow actually isn’t so bad if you have the equipment to move the city plow wake out of the end of the driveway. This year, I finally got a snowblower big enough to handle it.

    Thanks, John. And I’d love to see a photo of you blasting through the snow piles with your new snowblower.
